That appears to have done the trick...I had MeMBeRs in the URL and it processed 
it normally (I'll be testing this for a week to 10 days before placing it on 
other web servers).  How much CPU overhead would something like this add to the 
web server itself (if you know offhand).

Thanks for the help, btw!
